CJ Abrams and Eguy Rosario were together in the San Diego Padres’ 2021 spring training in Arizona.
The two Padres prospects are together early this season with the San Antonio Missions. Abrams was the starting shorstop and Rosario the starting second baseman for the Missions on opening day on May 4.
Abrams is 20 years old and was a first-round draft pick, No. 6 overall, by the Padres in 2019. He batted 8-of-25 (.320) with one home run, three doubles, four walks and five RBIs in the Missions’ just completed six-game series in Corpus Christi.
Rosario is 21 years old and from the Dominican Republic. He is off to a slower start at the plate, going 1-of-16 with three walks while seeing action in four of the Missions’ first six games.
